Science and Social Studies

Keeping pace with general education

All Havern students participate in both science and social studies instruction. Consistent with the goal of returning students to a general education environment, instructional topics are selected in coordination with Colorado State Standards.

Students explore topics through multiple formats—including classroom presentations and discussions, videos, hands-on activities, on-line resources, guest speakers and field trips. In keeping with our goal of returning students to a more general education environment, we focus on:

  • Strategies for reading comprehension in content areas
  • Note-taking skills
  • Organizing information
  • Developing a working understanding of science and social studies language and vocabulary

An annual Science Fair gives Havern students the opportunity to work on individual projects in a scientific area of their interest. Students may participate at the competitive or the noncompetitive level. Science Fair projects are judged by a panel of objective science professionals on the basis of quality and adherence to the scientific method.
